The Podolsko Bridge is an arch bridge that spans the Vltava between Podolsko and Temešvár in Písek District, Czech Republic. At the time of its completion in 1949, it was the longest arch bridge in Czechoslovakia.
After the Orlík Dam was completed in 1961, the Vltava rose 19 meters and covered part of the supports.
